Creating a Professional CV
28 June 2017
Writing a CV, at any stage of your career, can be difficult. There is a lot of conflicting advice out there; on the internet; from recruiters; from friends and family. It can be hard to know which information is relevant and will serve you well for securing your next position.
Lately, I have noticed an increase in candidates who are uncertain about how to put together a professional CV and have relied on poor examples to copy. Yes, even the internet can get it wrong occasionally. This often leaves them flustered and upset. After all, a good CV is often your first step in the door.
I always try to advise my candidates to tailor their CV as much as possible to the job they are applying for, but I realise this is not always possible. However, having a solid foundation to build on is the key.
Take a look at my inforgraphic to get an idea of how to create a professional CV that will tick all the right boxes.
